Storyline

Prizefighter Jimmy Nolan, facing an opportunity to get a championship fight, is knocked out when he sustains what is apparently a permanent injury to his arm. From there, Nolan's path leads downhill. He is drawn into a romance with a nightclub entertainer, then is framed on a theft charge by a jealous suitor. After his prison term, Nolan makes a spectacular comeback in a fight which proves his courage and integrity, while disproving the fallacy about the old sports adage that "they never come back."

I'll Never Come Back!
2 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one big clunker, from the ridiculous boxing scenes, to the whole premise. The actors sit around and mug and overact. There are pregnant pauses and endless pontificating. The guy needs to pay money back. There are a group of pathetic buffoons who get into the act. It's as if the director had no script and tried to squeeze what he thought was interesting int a series of scenes that go nowhere. Is anyone vindicated? Does it matter. At no time during the film did I care what happened to anyone. The whole boxing thing is dreadful and when it's over, how is it resolved? There is no suspense, no emotion, no questions to be answered. Normally, I can see some merit in these old films. I see none here.
